Camp (陣営, Shubetsu) is a term used in Genso Suikoden Card Stories. Camps are the side or forces that a character card is aligned to. Only Leader and Commoner cards have camp alignments.
Initially, there were five different camp alignments.
- New State Army (新同盟軍), the protagonist forces in Suikoden II.
- State Army Federation Faction (同盟軍連邦派), the forces of the City-State of Jowston, from Suikoden II, who wish to preserve the alliance (Muse, Greenhill, South Window and Two River).
- Third force (第三勢力), a term used to denote non or otherwise aligned forces.
- Royal Army (王国軍), referring to the army of the Highland Kingdom in Suikoden II.
- State Army Independence Faction (同盟軍独立派), referring to individual city-states within Jowston who do not try to preserve the alliance in Suikoden II (Matilda and Tinto).
Booster Pack Vol.2 introduced a single new alignment, making six.
- Toran Republican Army (トラン共和国軍), the forces of the Toran Republic after the events of Suikoden.
